What's wrong with the stock boards finish? Is it just that they aren't glossed + polished which you fer, or something else?

Nothing is wrong, they just typically don't catch my eye and seem to have lighter glass than the ones I have.

The mcvee I picked up at beach house a few months back had kinda sloppy cutlaps and a blemish or two on the bottom. Tint was a little streaky and glassed lighter than I prefer. Not sure where that batch was glassed at.

Ended up selling it to a friend who was in love with it and I quickly regretted it every time we paddled out together. I recently reunited with a beat up 8’2 and I can’t believe I was fussing over those little imperfections...magic board

also since im being a nitpicky bitch - 1. maybe its just me - but I wouldnt stand up a sexy nice board on concrete, period. 2. no deck pic? - but a closeup of his signature decal - really??? who cares!!?
Plus no A flex fin. Neither of my vaqueros have that signature. Seems strange

Mine which is direct from Marc also had blemishes (ink spots, strands). Does not affect the magic carpet ride but curious whether this is quality control issue at the usual glass shop, especially given the current order value.
Has anyone had this issue with their recent orders? Mine’s finished in Feb.

I picked up one from beach house a few months ago and glassing was just as good as my custom from a few years back. I’d say you’re right with how busy the shops are. Good time to be someone learning to glass!

Just picked up my Vaquero from Marc today at Aquatech here in the South Bay. He's been down here helping out with the Anderson/Liddle line for the past 3 days. He confirmed that he is no longer taking custom orders until January '22.

Always a pleasure talking story with the man.
